Join the expedition of explorer, Hernando Cortez and meet Diego Orteguilla, a 14-year old Spanish boy who signs on to sail from Cuba to the land of Mexico. Rumors abound of strange animals, exotic plants, a beautiful, whitewashed city surrounded by water and a people who own gold—lots of gold. You will see Diego and the Spanish soldiers fight their first battle in Mexico and learn of the great Aztec empire and the king who rules this empire, Montezuma. Diego meets two young Aztec nobles, Tonacoatl, a prince of Tlacopan, and the brash, Cacamatzin—a prince of Texcoco. Diego also learns about Aztec life through his contact with Chiameca, sister of Tonacoatl. The saga unfolds with Cortez’ far-reaching decision to burn his ships, the only means of escape, and march inland to meet the mighty Montezuma and see the Aztec capital city of Tenochtitlan. Many adventures await the reader as you witness the gigantic clash of cultures and ideas. This exciting tale of “Gold, Glory and God" is based on the lives of real historical characters, Aztec and Spanish.

Review:

This book is an excellent resource for teaching New World history. My 7th and 8th graders quickly became absorbed with the book, enjoying the characters, setting and action. Frequently during our lecture and discussion times, they would make references to events and characters from the novel, often leading to in-depth inquiries.
